#1: looking east to the Wasatch Range

(visited by David Mower)

04-Apr-2002 -- I left with high hopes, but the wetland and the left-over marsh grass soon did me in. I hate to log attempts, but I may never get any closer on this one. It is clear from prior attempts that this DCP lies beyond a wetland and in the mudflats surrounding the Great Salt Lake.

I have been checking the lake levels and found them to be quite low, so I thought I had a chance. But, the wetland was much wetter than I anticipated. The combination of water and deep, dead marsh grass from last fall made the going extremely slow and difficult. I gave up at 1.37 miles from the point.

It was a beautiful spring day. The wetland was alive with the sounds of frogs and birds.

A bad day exploring is better than any other day!

On the salt marshes of the Great Salt Lake's Farmington Bay. The terrain may be temporarily flooded.

On my map, the roads to the west of Kaysville are a little confusing. The basic landmark destination is the intersection of E 750 St S and Holmes Creek. The confluence is 1.78 miles (9384 feet) southwest (approximately) of this point. The actual heading is 227 degrees (true bearing).

Going south on SR 243/South Main St. in the center of Kaysville, bear right onto S 50 W (one block south of Center Street). Go 1.42 miles south until you come to Burton Lane (with I-15 directly to your right). Turn right onto S Burton Lane. Cross over or under I-15 and then a set of railroad tracks. Go 0.22 miles and cross another set of railroad tracks. Go 0.4 miles to the intersection with Sunset Drive. Turn left and go 0.3 miles; bear right onto an unnamed road! Go 1.14 miles on this road and intersect with E 750 St. S. Last road. Turn right and go 2.15 miles to Holmes Creek, your landmark destination as mentioned above.
